    Special Message to Parents/Guardians 

    Supply Chain Challenges SY 23-24

    Businesses across the nation are facing challenges including staffing and product shortages. The same is true of the manufacturers and the main distributor used by Northern Food Services. Many of the products used by the District are simply not available or have been discontinued as a result of these labor shortages and/or supply chain issues. Likewise, orders are being delayed and, in some instances, cancelled altogether.  Alternative distributors are simply not available to turn to as they are no longer taking on additional customers because they’re also short staffed.

    The Food Service Department is committed to do it’s best to provide students with the items listed on the monthly menu. However, menu items will be subject to change based on the availability from manufacturers and suppliers. We kindly ask for your understanding and patience as we navigate these unprecedented circumstances and times.

    Thank you
